I was so overwhelmed trying to find a photographer like 2 months before my wedding. I stumbled upon Thumbtack and I am so glad I did because Nico did such an amazing job and was so easy to work with. He did beautiful quality work for us and I love that he gives you the freedom to share your photos and get them printed wherever you want. He doesn't hold your photos hostage, like many other photographers. We ended up having the photos printed through his service and they had very high print quality. Also, he jumped in a snowbank without hesitation to get a perfect shot. Can't really get much better than that!

Our DJ, Tim was awesome! He worked well with not only my husband and I but with our photographer and guests. He made sure to play my requested songs while I was on the dance floor, which was pretty hard because I kept getting pulled in a million directions. He also made sure to annouce that those songs were my favs which made people come out and dance with me. The high energy arobics were super fun...people got involved! And, it was super funny that the winners of the musical chair portion became members of the Village People :) We would also like to send thanks for them working with us on the dollar dance request we had. We wanted to make a game out of it...$1 per dance, but same sex dances were $5 and whoever earned the most money won the TV remote for life! By making a game out of it we made more money then we thought we would...and I totally won the remote for life! But, I haven't really won husband still takes it! haha! Our DJ, Tim, was very personable...easy to talk too and some of the ladies asked about him too...haha! By the end of the night he asked if we wanted him to continue first I said no, but then my husband wanted more music. Without even questioning it, he kept right on playing. All in all, I would definitely recommend High Energy DJs to other people. We will come knocking at their door again too if we have another event that requires a dj. Scott Quimby and Tim were so easy to work with and we couldn't have asked for our event to turn out better than it was. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Most wedding photographers can arrange poses and capture them, but few photographers have the ability to capture the relationships, moods, and emotions that are the essence of any wedding day. Gia did all of that and offered us unique coverage. Gia’s work highlights the beauty and elegance of our wedding day in a way that cannot be described, but must be seen, both in the great albums and dvds she had ready for us in no time. Great job, Gia! Keep up the good work!

I have been using Lisa for 16 years for family and individual photo's. We are very happy with her artistic flare, quality work and care and time she puts in every photo shoot from start to finish! She does professional high end photo's at a fraction of the cost when comparing her services to other professional photographers. I recommend her to anyone in need of excellent photo's of their children, pets, weddings, graduate, etc. She does an awesome job!

Tell your story with creative photography! Milwaukee photographer, Sarah Schlicht, has been visually documenting life since 2001. Long before she picked up a professional digital camera, Sarah knew her passions in life: children and art. For her, watching the two come together as one was thrilling! As a teacher, Sarah knows that patience and a little silliness go a long way. She also knows too well that childhood is fleeting. Each day is a gift. Before you can catch your breath, another year has passed, hard to believe how much they've grown right under your nose. Sarah believes in the importance of capturing the innocence and discovery of this phase of life, as well as capturing the love between families of two, three, or more. Sarah takes the time to get to know your family, so your finished portraits truly reflect your personality. Her approach to photography is artistic, creative, and casual. Fresh Frame Photography, LLC is also available for weddings. We'd be thrilled to document your love story! Sarah's approach to wedding photography leans toward photojournalism; each photo tells a story, capturing a moment in time on your special day, and has been described as whimsical and vintage inspired. If you're interested in further information, please fill out a contact form at our website to request a "fresh bride" packet. When not behind the lens, Sarah teaches art, writes children's books, and lives with her husband and business partner, Matt, in the North Shore area of Milwaukee. Thank you for your interest in Fresh Frame Photography, LLC. We hope for the chance to exceed your expectations soon.

The lovely, friendly, and professional couple that make up LilyBear Photography captured our wedding day beautifully. From the moment we sat down to discuss our vision for our wedding photography, they were responsive, easy to talk to, and straightforward. We negotiated with them the kinds of pictures and the package we wanted, and they were extremely flexible and willing to work with us. We were the first wedding they shot, and I was totally blown away by the shots when we got them back. They not only took all the lovely candid, photo-journalistic style shots we'd asked for, but they did many, many creative shots that we'd never have thought of but have become some of our favorite images from the day. Working as a team, they captured lots of little moments from our family and guests that we'd never have known about as we were so busy during the wedding. I'm very grateful that we discovered this team of great photographers (and great people)! I'd highly recommend them to anyone who wants beautiful, affordable, and professional photographs of weddings, family, etc. They are fantastic! (BTW I am a real person - Jamie can give you my info as a reference if you like, just not going to leave it on the internets!)

I do wedding and graduation pictures on the cheap, no overhead, so I don't have to charge a lot. I've been doing weddings for more than 10 years now and grad. pictures for about 5 years in so. central WI. I take between 200 and 300 pix per wedding and about 100 for grad. pix. This is a sideline for me, and I'm not interested in getting rich on anyone just doing this, because I love to take pictures.
